On our way to the November rally with our FMCA club, we decided to visit a Florida State Park we have not been to before which was on our intended route. First, we crossed the new I- 10 bridge over the Pensacola Bay which was completed without a great deal of interruption to traffic.
We checked in the Big Lagoon State park on the west side of Pensacola. This coastal park is a gateway for many activities including boating, fishing, hiking and beginning or ending a 1, 515-mile sea kayaking circumnavigational saltwater paddling trail around the entire state.
The campground is in a rustic setting with power and nature all around. The roads and sites may not be suitable for some large rigs. We enjoyed walking the trails, boardwalks and the scenic water overlooks and the natural beauty of the park.
The club rally was held at the Sugar Sands RV Resort just south of Foley, Alabama. This park certainly deserves to call itself a resort. It was a very nice park and our small group had a great time here. If you are looking for a nice place to stay in the area, this would be a good choice.
On our way home, we made a lunch stop along the beach in Gulf Shores, AL
